Scope of application

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) apply to all offers, reservations and contracts in respect of all accommodation and pitches as well as other facilities rented out by the following EuroParcs Holiday Parks: As users of these GTC, they are hereinafter uniformly referred to collectively as EuroParcs Holiday Parks and individually as “Lessor” in the respective contractual relationship. Additional contractual conditions may be contractually agreed at the contractual level of the respective lessor; for the sake of clarity, these are referred to as “park conditions”. These additional parking conditions apply, insofar as effectively agreed, in addition to these GTC. In the event of contradictions between these GTC and the additional parking conditions of the respective Lessor, the additional parking conditions shall take precedence over these GTC.

1.2 In these GTC, the term “tenant” refers to the person who concludes a contract with the landlord for the temporary letting/use of accommodation or a campsite for recreational and holiday purposes. The term “user” refers to those persons who stay in the accommodation together with the tenant.

1.3 The contract is concluded between the tenant and the respective landlord named in the offer and in the booking confirmation. These GTC apply irrespective of whether the Hirer refers to any GTC of his own or to other GTC. The lessor rejects all GTC to which the lessee refers or which are used by the lessee.

1.4 Agreements deviating from these GTC must be made in text form.

Reservations (booking requests)

2.1 The landlord only processes reservations, i.e. booking requests from persons over 18 years of age. Reservations by persons under this age limit are therefore irrelevant and will not be processed.

2.2 The landlord reserves the right to refuse individual booking requests, in particular but not exclusively from groups or stays that are not for recreational and holiday purposes, without giving reasons or to attach special contractual conditions to them.

2.3 By making the reservation, the tenant offers the landlord the binding conclusion of the contract. The customer is bound to the offer for 14 days.

2.4 If the Hirer is not in possession of a written order confirmation including invoice within 14 days of making the reservation, the Hirer must contact the Reservations Department without delay, otherwise an appeal to the reservation is excluded.

2.5 The contract between the hirer and the lessor is concluded at the time the hirer has received access to the order confirmation. The Hirer shall check the booking confirmation and the invoice for correctness immediately after receipt. Any inaccuracies shall be notified to the lessor without delay, but in any case within 8 days.

2.6 The contract relates to the rental of accommodation or a pitch or other facilities for recreational and holiday purposes. This use is by its nature of short duration and the basis of the contract.

2.7 The customer is advised that for all booking types there is no right of withdrawal after conclusion of the contract due to the legal provision of § 312b para. 3 no. 6 BGB.

Changes to the contract (rebookings)

3.1 If the tenant wishes to make changes to the contract after it has been concluded, the landlord is not obliged to agree to these. If a change to the contract is possible and the Lessor makes it at the request of the customer, the Lessor may charge the costs of the changes in addition to the possibly increased costs of the changed services.


4.1 The tenant and the other users of the rented property are not permitted to allow other persons to use the accommodation or the parking space than those named in the contract without express agreement with the landlord in text form.

4.2 If the tenant and the landlord have expressly agreed that the original tenant or one or more users are to be replaced by substitutes, the tenant shall be jointly and severally liable with the substitutes to the landlord for the payment of the outstanding balance of the rent, the costs of alteration (see Article 3.1) and any additional costs as a result of the change of tenants or users, as well as any cancellation costs.


5.1 The tenant shall pay the landlord the agreed rental price as stated in the written booking confirmation / invoice of the reservation.

5.2 Subsequent discounts, special offers or voucher redemptions cannot be claimed.

5.3 It is not possible to combine different discounts.

5.4 Discount promotions are generally not valid for bookings with a stay longer than three weeks. Terms and conditions apply to all promotions.

Additional costs

6.1 The prices include the charge for the use of the rental property including a normal energy and water consumption and, if stated in the description, a final cleaning flat rate. If no normal energy and water consumption is included, but billing is based on consumption, this circumstance will be pointed out in the landlord’s description. All additional service charges (such as heating) as well as local visitor’s taxes etc. must be paid by the tenant. These costs are described in the price list. The total amount to be paid by the tenant is referred to as the “total price”.


7.1 For all contracts, 30 % of the total price is due for payment immediately after receipt of the booking confirmation to the indicated account number of the landlord. The remaining balance of 70 % is to be paid at the latest 6 weeks before arrival. For contracts concluded within 6 weeks prior to arrival, the total price is due for payment immediately upon receipt of the booking confirmation.

7.2 In the event of untimely payment of the amounts invoiced to the Tenant, the Tenant shall be in default immediately after expiry of the payment period. Insofar as the Lessor is willing and able to provide the contractual services and there is no statutory or contractual right of set-off or retention on the part of the Lessee, and if the Lessee is responsible for the default in payment, there shall be no claim to performance of the contract without full payment of the amounts due. In this case, the Lessor shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract after issuing a reminder with a deadline and to charge the Lessee with withdrawal costs in accordance with clause 12 of these contractual conditions.

7.3 Der Vermieter gilt stets als berechtigt, fällige Forderungen gegen den Mieter mit vom Mieter geleisteten Zahlungen zu verrechnen.

Arrival and departure

8.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the rented accommodation can be occupied from 16:00 on the agreed day of arrival stated in the booking confirmation and the accommodation must be vacated before 10:00 on the agreed day of departure stated in the booking confirmation.

Unless otherwise agreed individually or in the Lessor’s parking conditions, the following applies to a parking space: the Lessee may move into the parking space from 1 p.m. on the agreed day of arrival stated in the booking confirmation and the Lessee must vacate the parking space before 12 a.m. on the agreed day of departure.

8.2 If the tenant wishes to continue the contract with the landlord for longer than the agreed duration and the landlord agrees to this, the landlord shall always be entitled to allocate substitute accommodation/pitch without this giving rise to any claims for the tenant.

8.3 If the use of the accommodation or pitch or other facility is terminated earlier than on the date agreed and stated in the reservation confirmation, the tenant is not entitled to a refund of (part of) the rental price or costs.


9.1 Depending on the accommodation or the pitch, the landlord allows a maximum of 1 or 2 pets of the tenant or the users after explicit agreement. If the tenant or other users wish to bring pets, the tenant must ask for this directly when making the reservation. If the landlord expressly allows the tenant to bring pets, the landlord may charge the tenant a surcharge. The landlord reserves the right to refuse pets in the park – without giving reasons. Pets are generally not allowed in some types of accommodation and in some areas of the parks and campsite.

9.2 Haustiere dürfen nicht zu Gewässern, Schwimmbädern, Restaurants, überdachten Zentraleinrichtungen und anderen öffentlichen Einrichtungen im Park mitgenommen werden, sofern vor Ort nichts anderes angegeben wird.

10.4 If the tenant or the users or visitors of the tenant or the users cause nuisance of any kind, or if they behave contrary to the contract to such an extent that the immediate termination of the contract is justified, the landlord is entitled to terminate the contract with immediate effect. It is basically harassment or misconduct if other guests in the park or employees of the park qualify this harassment or misconduct as such. If the contract is terminated due to harassment or misconduct, clause 14.3 shall apply accordingly.

In such a case, entry may take place without the presence of the tenant or user.

11.3 In the event that the deposit is not paid immediately, the landlord is entitled to refuse the tenant or the other users access and to refuse the use of the accommodation or the pitch.

These amounts are 15% for cancellation up to three months before the arrival date, 50% between two and three months before the arrival date, 75% between one and two months before the arrival date, 90% for cancellation up to one month before the arrival date and 95% of the total price for cancellation on the arrival date.

Force majeure and changes; regulations in connection with pandemics

13.1 If the lessor is unable or temporarily unable to perform the contract in whole or in part due to force majeure, he shall submit a proposal for change (for other accommodation, another period, another place, etc.) to the lessee within 14 days of being informed of the impossibility of performing the contract.

In this case, the Lessor shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract with immediate effect. The lessor shall refund to the lessee any payments already made on the rental price. The lessor shall not be obliged to compensate for any damages beyond this.
